The Art Trail as part of The Hitchin Festival 2023 in Hitchin from 1 July 2023-
To 31 July 2023 showing “Casa” at Quotidien Bakery and “Pollarded Plane Trees” and “Flor Roja” at The British School, Queen Street, Hitchin. I returned to painting after 18 years away from it in September 2022. It’s great to be back. This is my first art exhibition opportunity in as many years.
I have always drawn from being a very small child. I started painting landscapes in oil years ago aged 10. I absolutely love nature, wild life and the natural world and think I have imparted this to all of our children. I was a voluntary tour guide at the Natural History Museum as a young mother. “ I studied art at the University of Hertfordshire BA (Hons) Fine Art 1997. I have run a professional studio for several years and taught art and life drawing. After a death in the family I put away my art and went on to study millinery working as a model milliner until 2020. I returned to painting in the Autumn of 2022 and feel I have ‘come home’. I haven’t stopped painting since. My paintings recently have been based on my woodland walks recording my impressions of the amazing fungi I find there. I am still working on this subject matter and have also started working on some large landscapes taken from ideas developed during my travels. I am exhibiting in the Art Trail, part of the Hitchin Festival and shall be showing my paintings at the Baldock Art and Heritage Centre, Sept 9th to October 1st as part of the Open Studios.
I have 2 greeting cards available of my work ‘Babes in the Wood’ and ‘Moss and Pinkgills’ (see above) available to purchase at £3 each in biodegradable cellophane wraps.
